RELIENT K ASCENDS WITH FORGET AND NOT SLOW DOWN CLAIMING THE NO. 1 SPOT ON CHRISTIAN SOUNDSCAN, NO. 15 POSITION ON THE BILLBOARD TOP 200 WHILE PEAKING AT NO. 3 ON THE iTunes ® OVERALL ALBUM CHART


The latest from the GRAMMY ® nominated Relient K, Forget and Not Slow Down, has proven to be a fan favorite landing in No. 1 at Christian soundscan, No. 15 on Billboard Top 200 and garnering as high as the No. 3 spot on the iTunes ® Overall Album chart selling more than 33,000 units.

The band teamed up with longtime producer Mark Townsend, and enlisted legendary mixer Andy Wallace (Nirvana, Jeff Buckley, Sheryl Crow) for their latest release on the band’s newly revived record label, Mono Vs. Stereo, in conjunction with JIVE Records.

Relient K also embarked on “A Three Hour Tour” with Copeland and Barcelona earlier this month, which has already seen sold out tour dates.  Remaining tour dates are listed below.  They will also hit the road for TobyMac’s Winter Wonder Slam tour on November 19, dates for which are also listed.

Relient K has been making the real thing since 1997, when Thiessen and Hoopes formed the band in high school. In the decade since, they’ve released five full-length albums (three are certified Gold), five EPs and a Christmas record. They have toured the globe, and racked up several hit singles, a Grammy nomination, two Dove Awards and performances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Conan O’ Brien and Jimmy Kimmel Live. The Los Angeles Times has praised Relient K for “its smart blend of punk pop and power pop, weaving together influences as diverse as the Beach Boys, Blink-182 and Fountains of Wayne” while Spin noted, “Few bands play punk-influenced modern rock as proficiently.”

Heaven's Metal: An Oral History of the Genesis of Christian Metal

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
